To date, no common exposure sites for the cases have been identified, however in all cases the disease has been acquired locally with no history of overseas travel. This constitutes a community outbreak with local transmission. All cases visited public areas in Brunswick and other inner Melbourne areas while they were infectious between 29 January and 9 February 2016
As measles is highly infectious through airborne transmission, other secondary cases could occur in susceptible people. Measles has an incubation period of between 7 and 18 days (average 14 days from exposure to rash) so should be considered in any susceptible person who presents with a compatible illness now or up until the end of February 2016.
